Patient Comments (1)
in Pawtucket, RI |
Dr Alves was available to take our family in when our Doctor that we so dearly loved closed down his practice. I had scheduled a first time appointment with dr Alves and was 8 minutes due to traffic which is normal. The receptionist tells me that Alves has a 10 minute window and that she has canceled my appointment. After taking time off the work and bringing my baby in with me, she asks if I want to reschedule. No thank you. Never again.
